It still baffles me why our successive Australian governments persist with the mythology of "dual citizenship". Either you are an Australian or you are not. There are no shades of grey here. Back during the period of the disintegration of Yugoslavia, then Prime Minister Bob Hawke, vowed to amend legislation to strip Australian citizens, found fighting for foreign forces, of their citizenship. Some forces exerted influence to have that idea abandoned. A great pity, and I've always wondered who exerted that influence.
